My Lent 2019 Book List Plans

Is this the year you really want to dive into Lent? Do you want to come out of this Lenten Season and truly feel that you've had a small share of living in the desert with Christ for 40 days? I know that I do. Maybe it's an upcoming birthday that's making me have more of a now-or-never type of attitude towards Lent. Or maybe I just acutely feel the necessity of truly modeling this for my children, and living it with my husband. Whatever it is, these are the books and resources I'm going to use this Lent to really LIVE the season from Ash Wednesday all the way through to Easter Vigil. Look them over. If something looks helpful to you, use it. If it inspires you, go with it. I hope all of these bless and encourage you.

Twas the Tuesday before the O'Antiphons start

Since I made it through four various Christmas concerts and facilitating a wedding at church, I thought it was in the clear for a straight shot towards Christmas!

But it was not to be. Last night I was asked to write a flute part to this lovely piece by Sandi Patty to be played at a baptism this coming Sunday.

It really is a lovely piece, and since the grandmother of the baby was kind enough to sing for my mother's funeral, I feel like this is my chance to return the favor.

But I'm a player, not a composer and this youtube piece is in the key of D and I need it in E flat - so I'll be composing and transposing instead of making Christmas cookies and writing personal Christmas card notes!

At least I got the refrain done so maybe I can get this done faster than I thought.

I plan to have a guide to celebrating the O antiphons up tomorrow.
